Day One Is Done- Join Us Tomorrow for the Finals

Walt Houston spikes against Jim Hankins and Anthony Ritz.
Day one is on the books.  We began the day with doubles pools and very few upsets.  Cory Current went down with an injury six points into his first match-causing he and his partner Scot Hansen to scratch out of the event- but otherwise the day went just about as one would expect.  We will see top seeded Ben Alston and Walt Houston taking on Chris Cleaver and Dan Greer in one semi-final and PT Lovern and current Cup holder Jack Harris take on Emmanuel Bouchard and Tuan Vu in the other semi-final.  Due to the great weather and efficient tournament directing, we also got in the first two rounds of singles net, too.  Walt Houston will face Jack Harris on one court while Ben Alston plays Dan Greer on the other.

Players and fans- we will be starting the singles semi-finals at Noon tomorrow with the Finals to follow at 1:00 PM.  We will go directly into the Doubles semi-finals at 2:00 PM to be followed by the Third Place match at 3:00 PM and the Battle for the Windy City Cup at 4:00 PM.  We will be at Humboldt Park unless the rain causes long delays, in which case we will move to the Shop.  See the "Competitors" page for a map.

Jack Harris doing what he does best- the Sun Back.
